PvdA Help, de wachtlijsten komen!

(NL Campaign Watch 2012)

Wat te verwachten viel gebeurde bij het televisiedebat tussen de lijsttrekkers bij Knevel & Van den Brink. Zowel Rutte als Pechtold waarschuwde voor wachtlijsten in de zorg als het verkiezingsprogramma van de PvdA wordt uitgevoerd. En jawel, het schrikbeeld van eind jaren negentig werd er weer bijgehaald. Naar die wachtlijsten van eind jaren negentig moeten we zeker niet terug. Maar anders dan Pechtold en Rutte doen geloven waren die wachtlijsten niet rechtstreeks gevolg van de budgettering in de zorg. Ook in de jaren tachtig kenden we een systeem van budgettering en waren er weinig klachten over wachtlijsten, terwijl de kosten van de zorg niet explodeerden zoals we de laatste jaren zien. Waardoor kwam het dan wel?

US analyst sees IFA as the world’s leading electronics trade show

Berlin (dapd). According to US blogger and analyst Michael Gartenberg, when IFA opens on Friday the big-name manufacturers and retailers from the US and Asia will also be in Berlin. “IFA gives the US market a good indication of what will soon be on the market here”, said Gartenberg in an interview with dapd. IFA already sets the pace worldwide and lays down the topics for other shows such as CES in January in Las Vegas.

“Nowadays a press release from Berlin is picked up and discussed immediately in the US”, said Gartenberg, commenting on the growing attention that IFA commands. Gartenberg is an IT industry observer for market analysts Gartner. IFA’s importance will continue to grow: “We have not yet reached the point where trade shows such as IFA are becoming less important or irrelevant”, said Gartenberg.

CES, its competitor, is still more important in North America. However, globally speaking “IFA’s influence is big, in the US as well as in South America and Asia”. According to Gartenberg IFA’s success has less to do with its timing, shortly before Christmas trading begins, but more to do with Berlin: the show benefits from the city and its location at the heart of Europe. What is more the exhibition grounds are bigger than in Las Vegas, allowing IFA to display an even wider range of products.

Gartenberg sees no signs of the industry’s major players shunning electronics trade shows. The decision whether to exhibit or not depends on each individual company’s situation. Apple is a special case anyway: “They know that everybody will be talking about them even if they are not exhibiting at IFA “, said Gartenberg.

In online video, minorities find an audience – By Hayley Tsukayama

A disproportionate share of YouTube’s top personalities are minorities, a striking contrast to the most popular shows on mainstream television, where the stars are largely white. These minority-produced, home-grown shows are drawing massive audiences — the top one has 5.2 million subscribers — enough to attract the attention of major advertisers.

On Wu’s videos, ads for Mazda and Toyota pop up. Michelle Phan, a Vietnamese American beauty guru, who ranks 20th among YouTube’s most popular channels, has become a spokeswoman for Lancome. YouTube declined to reveal how much such producers earn, but it says hundreds of them make at least six figures annually.

“A lot of U.S. marketers are leaving minority audiences on the table,” said Seneca Mudd, the director of industry initiatives at the Interactive Advertising Bureau. “Advertisers would ignore that trend at their own peril.”

Among the 20 most-subscribed-to channels on YouTube, eight feature minorities. Most are Asian American. Many more black and Latino shows populate the top 50. These producers are also finding an audience that has been largely neglected by Hollywood. Nearly 80 percent of minorities regularly watch online videos, compared with less than 70 percent of whites, the Pew Internet & American Life Project says.

Wu, who ranks 11th among YouTube channels, said he does not intentionally target Asian American issues. But those viewers more easily understand his jokes on dating, stereotypes and the generational clash between parents and kids, he said. “I just tell my stories honestly, and usually Asian Americans will relate to me because they say, ‘That’s how I am and with my parents,’ ” he said.

Added Phan: “If you look at mainstream media, there aren’t many Asian Americans. But it’s also shown non-Asians that they’re not that different from a girl with a different skin tone and a different background.”

Analysts say the trend of minority content on YouTube makes sense. Networks feel pressure to appeal to a broader audience, but Internet video can thrive by just targeting niches because the cost of producing a show is so low, said David Bushman, television curator for the Paley Center for Media.

But the audience for shows like those of Wu and Phan extends beyond their niche. The viewership numbers are eye-popping. Ryan Higa, a Japanese American comedian, has 5.2 million subscribers, second among all YouTube channels, according to the company. In total, his videos have been viewed 1.1 billion times.

Wu has 2.3 million subscribers, but often many more than that watch individual shows. While precise numbers are not available, a large majority of his users live in the United States, YouTube says. The same is true of other minority content producers.

Other analysts note that these figures cannot be neatly compared with Nielsen television ratings, which measure the U.S. audience tuning in to programs on the day they air, both live and on DVR.

Still, the growing popularity of online video — and the time it is taking away from other types of media — is turning heads in traditional studios, experts say.

For minorities, the medium offers a way to push back against stereotypes on network television, said Maureen Guthman, the head of brand strategy and acquisitions for the African American-focused channel TV One. Blacks can present themselves “completely unfiltered and without [someone] telling us, ‘You’ve got to be more this’ or ‘You’ve got to be more that,’ ” she said.

Although much of what’s on YouTube is raw, the production behind some of the shows is growing more sophisticated. Tutele, a popular Hispanic American channel, was launched by Maker Studios, a company with 70 million subscribers over 400 YouTube channels. Maker, which is also behind YouTube’s biggest hit, Ray William Johnson, also recently snagged former Disney vice president Chris Williams to be its chief programming officer.

“The Internet is moving so quickly in many directions that it’s hard to predict,” Guthman said. “I see some sort of merging” between online video and traditional television, she said.

It’s too early to say how this will play out, but a shift is coming, said Forrester analyst James McQuivey. Future content producers might choose to bypass the networks altogether, for instance, because they can go to advertisers directly with proof that there’s a demand for their content, he said.

“That may not be the case when you’re Joss Whedon or J.J. Abrams, but what about the next J.J. Abrams?” he said. “Will that person ever do a network television deal? I don’t think so.”

Regardless of the future of television, McQuivey said, the trend of minorities on online video is welcome.

“There’s a thriving opportunity for any of these groups to see a rise of content targeted at them from their own people,” he said, “and that will be a great thing.”
